May 18

If we have a proper service attitude to the Holy Name, which means to submit ourselves to the Holy Name in fervent prayer and in a mood of helpless dependence, then gradually we will become qualified to enjoy the Holy Name.

Srila Prabhupada was always forcing us to become internal and not to become dependent upon external results for pleasing the spiritual master. If we are internal in the execution of our service, if we always meditating on the pleasure of guru and Krsna, and we don’t want to take any benefit for ourselves, then reciprocation is there. The spiritual master is the representative of Krsna and Srila Prabhupada is the external manifestation of Supersoul. Therefore by pleasing him, we can understand that the Supersoul within the heart is also pleased and reciprocation is there.

If we don’t derive spiritual pleasure from chanting in the association of devotees, then we will become attracted to other forms of music and dance. Everybody likes to dance, therefore real dancing means to dance and chant for Krsna's love. This is our spiritual entertainment.

To be an effective servant of a vaishnava means that one has to assist him in his mission. This mission, which is given by all of Srila Prabhupada's disciples, is to spread Krsna consciousness in the same way that Srila Prabhupada gave it to us. And to be an effective instrument in spreading Krsna consciousness, we have to be able to appreciate the good qualities in others.

To be far away from the Lord means that one does not see Krsna in connection with what he is doing. If one simply thinks that "I am doing this to please myself" and tries to derive pleasure from that activity, that very desire drives him completely away from the Lord.

Varna does not even manifest until one becomes grihastha. Varna means occupational duty, which exists in the grihastha ashram. But for a brahmacari, his occupational duty is that he is the servant of the spiritual master.

It is completely contradictory to think of the welfare of others while defending one’s own false ego. Only a person who is actually free from false ego can genuinely feel compassion for the welfare of others.

When the higher order is there, and purity is there, then empowerment is also there. And when empowerment is there, then those who come in contact with it come in contact with Krsna.

One cannot be happy as long as he endeavors for happiness. As soon as he begins his endeavors for happiness, immediately the conditions for distress begin. This is a fruit of duality. If we don’t have Krsna consciousness, then all we have is duality and it is hell.
